Continuing Education

All practicing nurses must acquire a certain number of CE hours or credits each year – we seek to offer the most meaningful and useful programs to help you better your daily practice. Since the first session in the country in 1941, we have been providing CE events that are renowned for:

  1. Coverage of contemporary issues
  2. Timeliness – you’ll use what you learn in your daily practice
  3. Variety of topics: pharmacology, informatics, ethics, emerging technologies, and education
  4. Expertise of presenters
  5. Being based on research, thereby meeting your educational needs for evidence-based practice
  6. Convenience – offered live on the centrally-located Pitt campus in Oakland or in your living room through our online educational options!
